Introduction: Kids Play Table
This is a pretty strait forward instructable for a kids play table. The whole thing also works as a nice lightsource in our livingroom for whenever we need it.
Step 1: The Base: IKEA!
For the 2 side cabinets I just went to IKEA and picked up 2 cabinets from the 'BESTA' system. They are nice and spacious enough to hold a few big boxes with toys. That reminds me: the whole idea for this piece of furniture was to get all those toys out of sight.
I started out with a nice piece of wood in between the cabinets that functions as the table. Just glue and screw a block of wood to the side of both cabinets and put the tabletop ontop of the blocks. I added a piece of plywood as backing for strenght and to glue the houses on.
I just free-handed a few houses and buildings on scaffolding wood and cut them out. Then I glued them on the backing plywood. The last step was to install a LED strip. I just bought mine at a local store. Pro-tip: buy a RGB Led strip with a remote: my kid loves it!
